We know the transition to university isn't easy, so we're here to help.
Listen to some Trent students share their advice for their first-year self, view short videos on skills like notetaking, reading, and time management, and see the schedule for Academic Skills sessions during Orientation Week, 2021.
In-course Mentors and Resources to Support Students with Online Learning
The Online Learning Student Assistant (OLSA) program is an academic support program, supported by the Colleges at Trent and coordinated by Academic Skills, to help first-year students navigate the demands of, and thrive within, the online and in-person university learning environment.
Workshops and Events for Graduate Students
As a graduate student, you are likely facing new academic challenges. The ideas about which you are reading, thinking, and writing are becoming increasingly complex, yet you need to find clear, concise, and engaging ways to express them.
Educating Students about Academic Integrity
We administer an online module on Academic Integrity at Trent, which you may find on your learning system if your professor requires you to complete it for a course. The online module is comprised of three sections: Policy and Practice, Avoiding Plagiarism, and Avoiding Cheating.
